New Caratonia

The Federation of New Caratonia is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its zero percent divorce rate, ban on automobiles, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.805 billion New Caratonians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient New Caratonian economy, worth 262 trillion Carats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 145,330 Carats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, courtrooms can be a little sketchy, and vast amounts of energy are expended moving water to hilltop lakes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Caratonia's national animal is the Rabbit, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Caratonia is ranked 261,322nd in the world and 1,218th in 10000 Islands for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -15.8 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
